Nothing to fear...

It has become increasingly clear to me that we are a people who are afraid. Afraid of what you might ask. Afraid of what others think. You say, "I'm not afraid..." Oh no I say? We are afraid to say what we think because we don't want to be labeled. One such label is "Politically Correct". Actually somehow this movement has brainwashed us all to fear not fitting its definition. Why? What does it mean and who really cares? Would you rather be free? Most don't even realize that they are captive, but hold on, because once they breathe that relaxed breath of freedom they will want some more my brother. Katie bare the door.

If you don't want illegal immigrants in our country... Say it!!!
If you don't want a mosque near ground zero... Say it!!!
If you don't want gay marriage legalized... Say it!!!
If you don't want abortion legalized... Say it!!!

If you like driving SUV instead of compact hybrids... Do it!!!
If you like eating red meat... Do it!!!

Trust me it is possible to love tractor pulls and enjoy Longfellow. Stereotypes waste the lives of people who fear exploration of their limits.

Propaganda is a tool to control the weak minded.

Political Correctness Be Damned!!!

Friends, those who would have you silenced are the same ones who scream censorship when their opinions are infringed upon. I think this is a little hypocritical no a LOT hypocritical.

It is not wrong to want our country to be better than any other. Though they'd have you believe it is... They have their opinion (however misguided) you should have yours freely too.

Set yourselves free my brothers and sisters...

Intellectual Honesty

It has become increasingly obvious to me that one of the biggest problems with people today is that they are not intellectually honest. You may ask, "What do you mean?" Well telling people what you actually are thinking. Not having an aggenda. Not trying to discredit or distract someone whose aggenda does not agree with yours.

How do we fix it? First you must care about the truth yourself. You will find that we have even learned to become guarded about our motives and aggendas. So if you are thinking about something you want to do. Be honest about it and your reasons for wanting to do. Example: "I want and iPhone because people will think I'm cool because owning one is cool." Just because you keep it inside doesn't mean you are anyless shallow or superficial. This way you can encourage other people to be honest too.

Any intellecual discussion aimed at solving a problem must have the committment of both sides to be intellectually honest or you just have arguing of aggendas... If you can't get your fellow debater to commit don't waste your time in debating the core issue.

Most people spew talking points in politics and aren't worried about the preservation of our freedom but rather the success of their party or ideology... When inside they may agree they won't say it out loud.

Encourage your friends to seek and speak the truth.
